Thunder Road Café
No probs with food quality, service robotic no real interaction, when one person asked for just vanilla ice cream for dessert, they were told no, they don't do ice-cream even though it came out with other people at the tables desserts. Not prepared to stray from menu and no apology. Not acceptable, no feeling of being a valued customer.
Such a good place on a Sunday night we all had an absolute ball and drinks are so cheap love the 2 for 1 deal !!
We were disappointed when we visited last week. We had visited many years ago and loved the music and atmosphere. This time the music is all club, and obviously geared towards the many 20 somethings, who thought they were in a night club. We thought thunder road was more rock, such as bon Jovi, meat loaf etc, but this is not the case. The noise level was horrendous. We couldn't chat, so left ASAP.
Music was too loud, we were in a table trying to talk with friends but it was impossible! Even to ask the food was difficult... It was Saturday at 7PM.
My overall experience ended on a bad note as i was asked to leave by your security for what reason i dont know .I was assaulted while on the premises. Not only that but my 14year old son was also assaulted and at one stage your security weren't interested in hearing my side of the story. Up untill the point of the incident wr were having a great time. I am sorry to say that due to what happened i will have to think before i return again.
When we arrived at the restaurant we were shown to our table immediately however the lady who met us at the door could have managed a smile! As we were shown to our table we were told they needed the table back in 2 hours 20 minutes which was a bit of a surprise to me as it never mentioned anything like that when I booked online. Once the party had decided what they wanted, our order was taken and the food came out in good time. Everybody really enjoyed their meal. I asked for the dessert menu and after 10 minutes we still hadn't gotten them so had to ask again for them. The desserts were lovely however we were advised that they "needed the table back soon" my response to that was if they had of been quicker at serving us dessert then we would have been off the table an all by the time allocated. Overall it was a good service and I would eat here again but felt towards the end we were being rushed off the table through no fault of our own. The service could have been a bit quicker towards the end of the meal.
Great atmosphere on a Friday night! Portions are huge!
Beautifull food and great service will definitely be back
I always went to thunder road, gone down hill big time, food was disgraceful, gave back my thunder burger as no sauce on it and fell apart was as dry as the Sahara dessert, 10 chips came with the dish, hinecthe days when you got a salad on the side with it, presentation awful, dessert only decent part of the food, won’t be back again always celebrated birthdays it’s a no no from me
Had a lovely time and staff were very friendly and helpful. Will be back
Great food. Place was quite loud. Service was fastest I have ever had. Decent prices over all an 8/10.
We waited neatly 40 mins for our food. The place was really loud and instead of doing something about the rowdy customers an employee just turned up the volume on the already loud music. I left with a pounding headache. Not the place to go if you want to be able to chat whilst eating out.
Great time again with the family. Staff excellent, service excellent, food excellent.. great value for money...
We reserved a table for 4 , had to wait 15 mins before we got seated at a 6 person table. Was a little awkward as we had 2 children in the party of 4. We had to wait awhile for the food as it was so busy. Food was lovely. Good value.
Always gorgeous food, friendly staff and amazing atmosphere
I taught the food was excellent and the music was good that is why i came back .The only let down was i had to keep asking for my drinks on several occasions
Lovely staff and gorgeous food . Will definitely be back. Great value for money and kids meal are brilliant.
Quick but enjoyable meal in TRC, first visit and will definitely return.
Food was lovely would recommend to anyone
The food was gorgeous and the atmosphere was brilliant. A member of staff named Rebecca came to our table and chatted with us and made sure we were enjoying the experience. Its a great restaurant overall and id go over and over again.
Great atmosphere. Friendly staff. Delicious food. Spotless toilets
We all had a great time. Staff were excellent. My only suggestion would be to offer skinny fries, as kids often don’t like chunky chips!
Looks great from the outside but very disappointing inside. Food and cocktails weren’t very nice and servers were rude. Disappointed that we chose to come here, wouldn’t go back!
Very nice Halloween theme and food was delicious, desserts extremely nice as well. Service was great just was given the wrong bill which is a perfectly fine mistake to make. So overall a very good experience and would come back again.
When we arrived at Thunderroad Cafe we were delighted that our table was ready for us as we had booked . We were served quickly and by a friendly member of staff . When we ordered our starter it was served within 2-3 mins but was not warm . My main dish which was Chilli con carne was very poor and the quality of meat content was so disappointing . My 2 kids had ordered chicken goujons and they wer not overally warm .We were put in a corner up the back of the restaurant then within 10 mins their was a table of 15 fellas squeezed in beside us ( which was not booked ) and was quite daunting for my 10 year old son as they were very rowdy using bad language . We also let you's know in our booking that it was our daughters 16th birthday but yet nothing was done about this, tho the table of rowdy fellas got a desert with a sparkle in as did the table in front of us and sang Happy Birthday too ( this really upsetting my wife who was waiting anxiously for something to happen ) This had been my daughters choice of Restaurant and to be honest feel very let down on the night .
I always enjoy my time in TR,
Always a great Buzz, food is great, staff are happy polite and friendly,
Food was great drinks were amazing, staffs were very friendly we really has a good time and we will visit again soon
Unfortunately, the food just wasn't great. Obviously, this could be to do with there being a concert on but this shouldn't be a reason to serve poor quality, especially for the prices being charged.
The night we went Little Mix were playing in Dublin so cue lots of kids and Little Mix music, but that could not deter us from having a thoroughly enjoyable meal with excellent service.
I was going to the little concert with my two daughters so we booked a table to have food and cocktails. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful considering the restaurant was busy. Food was fabulous and cocktails were delicious. ❤️❤️
The food was lovely and the cocktail as well but it’s a little bit overpriced
Great staff, quick service, brilliant place with fun atmosphere. Really enjoyed and will definitely come back again.
Everything was fine, the majority of the waitstaff were fine. One of the male waitstaff was exceedingly rude, not only to us but to other customers as well. He came over to our table and very rudely said “did yous order desserts” when we told him we did he cut across us to say “why did you send them back then” wouldn’t let us explain that one of the girls had brought them to the wrong table. Everything else was great although service was kind of slow.
Great night staff very good atmosphere excellant a place to go for all ages
The atmosphere is awesome and the decorations make the place unique.
Food is superb and good value. As for the location, you would find it in Temple bar!
Only issue was forgetting to use the table lamp, once I remembered the service was quick!
Good food terrible service waiting over an hour on main had ask 3 different staff for the bill.
Good spot if you want to go there for a special occasion. A bit overpriced, but it could be because others wanted to buy a few cocktails. May come back next year or if someone else chooses it as a special occasion.
Very quick service staff lovely. Brilliant idea with the light on each table allowing staff to know you are ready to order or need assistance. Can't wait to return food was amazing and so was the cocktails
